Yesterday Missouri went to the polls, and yesterday was hot. In my part of the state the temperature was 99 at its peak and stayed over 90 until after sundown. And nearly a million people went out into the heat to vote.
Proposition C (the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act) was up for a vote, and more people voted on the referendum than on the candidates. Prop C passed with a 71% majority. The federal government will almost certainly sue Missouri for passing a law written in contradiction to ObamaCare, and pundits and politicians are already arguing the significance of what happened. In coming days we’ll learn the full meaning of yesterday’s vote.
